Lanthanides are a group of 14 naturally occurring elements with atomic numbers ranging from 57 (La) to 74 (Lu), which are also known as rare earth elements (REE). REEs are ubiquitous in minerals and rocks. The chemical properties of REEs vary as smooth functions of their atomic numbers, a phenomenon known as the contraction of the lanthanides. This is the main control behind REE fractionation in minerals and rocks. The relative abundance of REEs is usually presented as the REE pattern by normalizing the concentrations in the sample to those in reference materials such as chondrites and shales.
